Axton Ray vs. Jeff Connelly in Kingsport!

The unique feud between Axton Ray and Jeff Connelly will come to a head on March 30 in Kingsport, TN as they face off in the 1st Round of the Smoky Mountain Cup 2019.

Back in July, Axton Ray challenged Elliott Russell for the United States Heavyweight Title in Bristol. Axton was defeated in that match due to interference from Connelly.

At Fire on the Mountain in August, Jeff Connelly and Axton Ray faced off one-on-one. Leading to that match-up, Connelly seemed to be obsessed with Axton physically and with the idea that Axton had been handed opportunities that he didn’t deserve.

The mind games came to a climax at the conclusion of their match as Jeff Connelly forced a kiss on Axton Ray. This drove Axton into a rage, in which Jeff was able to capitalize on for the win.

When Jeff Connelly was announced for the Smoky Mountain Cup, Axton Ray asked Innovate Wrestling matchmakers for this match. Axton is out for revenge but can he keep his emotions in check?
